Catherine Hill Bay Boardriders Club competition March 2015 PART 2 Photography

Chris Prior has just posted a new lightbox of Lifestyle stock photos. Catherine Hill Bay Boardriders monthly club competition for March 2015 was almost a carbon copy of the previous months conditions just a little less gnarly. Scheduled for Saturday 7th it was postponed to the following day due to a heavy swell closing out the whole bay and definitely not conducive to a fun day at the beach. The move proved to be a good one as the swell died down sufficiently to give us some nice one to two metre waves all day. You'll find the complete lightbox here to view all the images .

Travel Stock Photography by David C Hancock

Outback Roads is a new gallery of Travel stock photos by David C Hancock. What passes for a road in various parts of Australia can be nothing more than a graded track. However, these roads are highly important and heavily used by local people and are usually very well maintained. In the north, the wet season can wash out roads but they reappear in the dry. Many Outback roads are important economic connectors - particularly for the cattle industry, and Aboriginal people who travel frequently for ceremonies and family reasons.

Christina Jablonski has just posted a new set of Environment photos. The Remarkable Rocks are one of the great attractions of Kangaroo Island in South Australia. Balanced on the cliff top by the Great Australian Bight, those granite rocks acquired their strange surreal shapes because they were exposed to the harsh southern winds and rains for millenia. A species of red lichens grows on the rocks mostly on the ocean side of the cliff and give them the orange colour.

Owls watch and wait. All have feathers, and lay eggs. Some are pets. You'll find the full lightbox here for full details and all the images.

Rock Art Contact Period – A New Photo Lightbox from David C Hancock

David C Hancock has just published a new lightbox of History images. When Indigenous Australians first came into contact with Europeans their art detailed remarkable observations - people with white skin, ships, guns and horses all made initial big impressions. Then, as both groups intermingled and got to know each other, Aboriginal people drew images more as social reportage for others who would not, or could not, venture out of remote locations. Much of this "Contact Art" is being rediscovered in Arnhem Land today. You'll find the main post here to see all the images.
